Lost is Found

It has been years my rosary beads my hubby bought me have been lost. They are at least 55 years old. He bought them at Notre Dame Cathedral at Notre Dame University in Indiana,  while we were in Ind visiting his sister.   I thought they probably went to the Salvation Army along with a purse that I forgot to check.  I used to call it my funeral purse which I always put my rosary in.  The other day I couldn't find my meds I picked up at the pharmacy so went in search in the car.  I felt under the seat and low and behold I felt what I thought was a bracelet and pulled out my rosary.  I have vacced that area a hundred times and never picked them up.  I am guessing my purse must have opened and things spilled out and I hurriedly picked up the contents and didn't notice the beads were missing.  I just couldn't believe it. I have prayed so much over the years to find them and finally I have them back.  They mean so much to me.

The cross  on these beads are from beads I had when I made my confirmation.

When it looked like I never would find these beads I made a pair from a utube video

The cross and connecting medal came from beads that belonged to my mom.

I think I am going to put my moms cross on my old beads as it has a white background and my beads are white.

I am so happy!!!

  Yes, I immediately said the rosary on my lost beads and yes I found my pills.

  1. How wonderful!! I would hate to lose the Rosary that Joe gave me when I became a Catholic before we got married. I carry them in my purse daily. Mine are in a zipped coin purse though. I did lose a Rosary that a dear friend got for me in Israel when she and her hubby were there. I left them in my car when I traded it for the one we have now. I was very upset when I realized I left them in the Kia. Then I just hoped the new owner would be blessed by them. Great story and I am so happy for you!

  2. That's amazing that you found them after all this time. How fantastic!

  3. wow, that's wonderful. It is beautiful.

  4. It is amazing, or what I call a "Godincident" that you found your rosary. I know how precious they are. I have one my hubby gave me several years ago that is broken. I have all the parts and need to fix it. It is the one I carry all the time too. I have LOTS of rosaries but this one is super special. Now that you know how to make rosaries, have you thought about making them for people coming into the church? I used to make them for all our RCIA people but had to stop when my hands would not let me continue. My hands have healed up so am getting ready to start making them again to give to the RCIA group.

  5. Wow it is amazing you never swept them up, that is terrific, you never know when you might find something while searching for something else :)

  6. YAY! I remember how upset you were when you realized they were lost. I felt so bad for you. Now I am so happy for you! They were meant to be found now. This must be so comforting to you! Love you, my friend!
